A solution is suggested in which two estimates are requested that are then used as upper and lower bounds. The mean of... Topics: ERIC Archive, Questionnaires, Reliability, Responses, Bastick, Tony

Subjects were 125 adults in Cache County, Utah at each SES level. Higher payment elicited more returns than lower payment, prepayment elicited more than promised payment, and high-SES subjects returned...
